External Ids for PHB Gene
This gene is evolutionarily conserved, and its product is proposed to play a role in human cellular senescence and tumor suppression. Antiproliferative activity is reported to be localized to the 3' UTR, which is proposed to function as a trans-acting regulatory RNA. Several pseudogenes of this gene have been identified. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]
GeneCards Summary for PHB Gene
PHB (Prohibitin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PHB include breast cancer and brca1 and brca2 hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle / Checkpoint Control and Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription regulatory region DNA binding and sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PHB Gene
Prohibitin inhibits DNA synthesis. It has a role in regulating proliferation. As yet it is unclear if the protein or the mRNA exhibits this effect. May play a role in regulating mitochondrial respiration activity and in aging.
